Personal injury in Regional Bar

Chambers of John Elvidge QC

Dere Street Barristers is home to Daniel Edwards, who specialises in catastrophic injury cases - he primarily acts for claimants, but also does some defendant work.

Chambers of Bill Braithwaite QC

Exchange Chambers 'always has the right person for the case' and its members are commonly instructed in high-value cases involving catastrophic injuries. Pankaj Madan represented the defendant in a chronic pain case, in which an injury resulted in a loss of employment rendering the claimant ineligible for indefinite leave to remain, resulting in a substantial loss of future earnings claim.

Chambers of Nigel Poole QC

Kings Chambers has bolstered its presence within the region in the past year with the arrival of Toby Coupe from Park Square Barristers. Members are instructed on a wide range of complex work, often dealing with catastrophic injuries, industrial disease and workplace accidents.

Chambers of Richard Wright QC

Members of Park Square Barristers represent both claimants and defendants in a wide range of personal injury matters, with several members being particularly in demand to defend against fraudulent claims. Other key areas of practice include catastrophic injury and industrial disease claims.

Chambers of Christopher Williams

With a large number of specialist practitioners among its ranks, Parklane Plowden has 'a big reputation for serious injury work in the region'. A notable recent instruction is Christopher Williams acting for the defendant funeral home in a claim for psychiatric injury brought by mourners who had witnessed pallbearers drop the coffin of a family member into its grave, breaking open the lid and exposing the body inside.

Chambers of Simon Bickler QC

St Paul's Chambers is predominantly instructed on behalf of claimants in personal injury cases, with a particular focus on complex, large-scale cases. Of note in 2018, Sophie Mitchell's work on the Mau Mau civil litigation came to an end, while Robert Smith secured a seven-figure settlement for a pedestrian claimant involved in a contested road accident.

Chambers of David Bradshaw

Zenith Chambers has a strong presence in personal injury work, acting for both claimants and defendants in a wide range of matters. Members of the 'very strong' team are praised by clients for their ability to 'feed off each other's expertise'. In a recent work example, Mark Henley   was instructed on behalf of the Ministry of Justice to defend a mesothelioma claim that was initially pleaded at over £1m.
